Felix Brady has achieved an ingenious snapshot of London life for Col3trane. 

Zooming in and out on house parties, hangouts on rooftops, kids setting off fireworks in parks - Brady captures the vibrancy of the city in a continuous shot from a high vantage point. And then he gets Col3trane in a variety of locations within the single shot. That’s clever - he explains how it’s done below.

“The song is playful,” Cole says. “And the video is a party; all positive, all fun. I’m proud we made something that looks and feels like London.”

From the director


"This was a mad one, with so many thing to think about. First off finding the right vantage point to shoot from, and then actually getting the permission to film in all the places we were looking into. Not a small feat for production.

"Then there was the technicals. The low light (and lack of ability TO light the street), blended with the need to zoom over huge distance created quite the challenge camera-wise. We ended up shooting on a Varicam, pushing it to 10000 ISO. The lens was a crazy "shooting lions in the savannah" type lens, and it went from 50 to 1000mm.

"Then Justin Pentacost came through with the motion control head that allowed us to map the whole move and repeat it for each of our setups. It was amazing to use MOCO in 'outside studio' setting and really combine tech and narrative to achieve a surreal look in a believable London setting.

"The shoot itself was a lot of running in and out of buildings and basically taking over a small block in Bermondsey. We had a gooden, it was a great crew and Col3trane and Ebenezer were fantastic to work with."
